Cowboy Corvette – 650HP Silverado

May 25th, 2017

What’s an old saddle tramp to do when he has a Corvette heart and a Pickup life?

That’s exactly where Bruce Lethco was at in his own life. What made matters even worse is that Bruce’s wife was dead set against him having a high-powered sports car. Along about there is when he discovered Armageddon. No, not the bloody end-of-times battle but Armageddon Turbo Systems.

Bruce’s 2014 Chevy Silverado was pretty powerful, according to pickup truck standards, but keep in mind that old Bruce has a Corvette heart. Luckily for him, Armageddon hooked him up with a twin turbo system that took his Silverado from 287hp and 296 lb.-ft. of torque to a ‘Vette thrashing 646hp and 666 lb.-ft. of torque. All those ponies have Bruce back out on the range, looking to corral some street racers in his sleeper Silverado.

Who knew that you could have all that power from a stock looking pickup with a stock engine and transmission? This video shows us some good street hits and dyno testing.

Here’s a rundown of the upgrades:

  • Armageddon Twin Turbo Kit for 2014 & up GM 1500 Series Trucks/SUV
  • Armageddon 3-inch Exhaust
  • Kooks GREEN Catalytic Converters
  • Turbosmart e-Boost2 Boost Controller
  • Wilwood Big Brake Kit
  • Armageddon LT4 Fuel Injectors and High Pressure Pump
